Despite being blessed with these, there was something missing…
an unexplained sense of emptiness inside.
I felt lost and confused about how I felt.
I was having difficulty trusting others and their intentions.
My expectations of myself, others, and how the world should be was constantly leading to disappointment, frustration, misunderstanding, and hurt.
I questioned if I was selfish or ungrateful for my experiences.
I was not.
I was being called to stop searching for happiness and fulfillment outside of myself and to start going inside to get to know my real Self: to uncover all the shrouds, the misguided beliefs, and the illusory nature of this world.
I was being called to my own empowerment, my own authenticity, and my own healing en route to discovering who I really am.
Was I called to spirituality earlier in life? Yes.
Did I listen? No.
Life has a way of first whispering to us before its calls get louder and louder. Until we finally listen. I listened this time because the call was undeniable…
And the journey continues. I am forever a student and forever grateful to my teachers who have patiently taught and showered such grace upon me on my continued spiritual journey.
I have a deep understanding of human behavior from my background as a clinical psychologist. As a spiritual coach, I share what I know to be true. I do not profess to know all the answers because I simply don’t. Very few do. What I do know is how to facilitate people’s self-empowerment, coach someone into their authenticity, and tune into mind-body-spirit needs. What I know to be true is individuals can learn from their own experiences, tap into their sense of discernment, and integrate intuition on their respective spiritual journeys.
I am here to be a guide in this process.
Philosophy of Growth
Growth and healing occur within the context of relationships: our connection to Self, others, a value or moral code, and Source/God/Universe/Higher Power.
A lotus flower is a wonderful representation of the healing spirit. A lotus flower slowly blooms out of mud and murky water. It illustrates how beauty can arise out of darkness and add strength to our character despite adversity.
As we lean into our personal truth and vulnerability, strength to stand up to our fears and blossom into a more authentic version of ourselves becomes possible.
Coaching with Me
Any growth or changes you make, require investment, commitment, and doing the work. I have found people who get the most out of coaching, put in the most: showing openness to their own experience, receptivity to feedback, willingness to step outside of their comfort zone, ability to celebrate their successes, motivation to bridge gaps in thought, emotion, and behavioral responses, and honest dialogue. Evolving is a process of change. Being open, committed, and reflective are very important in this work.
I collaborate with clients in coaching, incorporating mindfulness, self-inquiry, positive psychology, meditation, and pranayama (breathing exercises). In addition, I use a spiritual lens by looking at faith and value-based systems, spiritual connectedness, and yogic principles as we collaborate toward change and wellness.
Why I Chose Spiritual Coaching
“I’ve always been intrigued by people and drawn to patterns. Curious as to why we do the things we do. Why we pick the choices we choose. And why we find ourselves in repeating patterns. As a teenager, I found some joy when someone felt encouraged by a thoughtful response and when witnessing someone’s a-ha moment.
I’ve also been touched by kindness, hurt, longing, and healing in my own life. I’ve learned that all of our stories weave together tales of adventure, pain, success, blocks, breakthroughs, light, stumbles, cravings, love, confusion, meaning, and acceptance. My path into spirituality and wellness really began when I sought to find the missing link in my mind-body-spirit journey: my connection to my Self…
Writing, especially poetry, has been a powerful outlet for me since I was young. I write as an expression of Joy; when I’m at peace; when emotions feel too big; when thoughts pull me in different directions; when I need to remind myself to honor and stay in my own incredible lane in this Big World.
But most importantly, my love for sharing spirituality, wellness, and writing began when I learned to love myself for how my Divine Maker created me.
As a supporter of celebrating humanness and making conscious choices, I’ve found spirituality and holistic wellness to be both, the personal and career path for me. It has been truly rewarding and I look forward to helping you navigate shifting chapters in your own life.”
